Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Smash the bananas with a potato masher.
Combine flour, wheat germ, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a bowl.
In a standing mixer combine the mashed bananas, honey, oil, vanilla, and egg. Beat until combined.
Gently mix in the dry ingredients in 3 stages until just combined. Fold in mini chocolate chips. Do not over-mix.
